Yes and I might add that seeing naked pictures doesn't help what ever comes under that category either

Michael Thacker - Louisville Realtor They make me hungry too. How come the food at the restaurant never looks like it does in the advertisement?

Depends on the food and how full I am.  After a big meal, I might become bulemic if I see a picture of food!

 

Advertising doesn't make us fat.  Our inability to control portions, to say "no" and exercise appropriately does.

I would say , NO!

The obesity issue comes with mega sized portions. 

How often have you gone to a place knowing there would be sufficient leftover for tomorrows lunch. That is not the problem.

The problem is many do not have any leftovers. 

Subway, an Icon for healthy fast food eating. Undermined by the $5 foot long. The big people ate the whole thing!!!
